WRITER. ART PLUSHIE MAKER. TEXTILE ARTIST. AMATEUR PHOTOGRAPHER/PHOTO-MANIPULATOR. POET. TRADITIONAL/DIGITAL ILLUSTRATOR. DISCORDIAN, WICCAN, AMATEUR ASTROLOGER, ODD-BALL and DREAMER.
Allow me to introduce myself.
I'm a story-teller, since stories are told as pictures and words. For most of my writing, my chosen genre is Dark Fantasy Erotica [in a modern-day like setting of my own creation], and it seems I'm best suited to First Person narration in present tense.
My chosen Media includes: Pen, pencil, paintbrush, paper, needle, fabric, thread, sewing machine, crochet hook, knitting loom, yarn, camera, mouse and keyboard.
My creative style is best described as: Dark fantasy/erotica [prose]; emotional, frequently violent, dark, romantic or erotic [poetry]; surreal/fantasy/dark/nature [digital art, photography, photomanipulation, traditional art]; Quirky/kitsch/child-like and insanely colourful [textiles and soft-toy design].

I like to think I'm an open-minded, forgiving, kind [perhaps too kind] and friendly person. Yes, I have spiritual beliefs and these are best described as Discordianism and Wicca, with a firm belief in Karma, Animism, the Gaia Theory and my personal, stranger beliefs thrown into the mix. I created this sigil for myself today:
I'm a colourful [and loud] person, I wear odd socks, I'm easily entertained by the silliest and simplest things, I love nature and animals, I collect things [MANY things
], I'm emotionally sensitive, I have a Mental Illness [which I'm managing really well with a good home environment, enjoyable activities and emotional support], a new partner interstate [I met him online 17/07/2016
], a thirteen-year-old son, and an eleven-month old kitten [she's part ragdoll, with blue eyes
Yay! A stamp.

Yup. I'm a shortass.
About 5ft2, and I'm probably gonna shrink as I get older!
Yup, it's true.

Hahaha. This made me
Had to add it.
It certainly is an art form.
I find this stamp amusing.
This one also amuses me.
I'm still giggling on the inside.
Yes, it's true.
So it would seem.
Now it's time to spread the love and good feelings.
Have a nice day, folks!
